Forgotten in Clinic
Okay it sort of felt like that …
Isa was accessed without event, and she got her meds, I scrupulously checked the dosages. PARENTS… figure out your kids doses. The nurses sometimes order them wrong and you won’t know it unless you follow the protocol and figure out the m². Using metric measurements h X w ÷ 3600 then find the square root of that number. The protocol that you’re on will have the correct amounts for your child using the number that you get from that formula.
No I don’t do the math, my husband does. BUT… today, I knew that 15mg dose of Doxorubicin was correct considering she has gained nearly 2 kg! But I also knew that the 2 and 1/2 tabs I was supposed to be giving her was WRONG. Yes, the doctors/nurse practitioners wrote the prescription wrong! IF I HAD NOT BEEN PAYING ATTENTION SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN TAKING 10 MG PER DAY INSTEAD OF 6MG. Maybe this isn’ t enough to mess her up. BUT then again maybe it is.
She received no presents from today from Mama and Papa. She will get a big party on the 11th. But we did take her to Vietnamese food for some Pho. The steroids do something wonderful to the formerly skinny child, but it is so strange to see it happen.
Thanks for reading.
Love and light,
